Re: Buy Low Candidates for 2012
I'm a little reluctant to roll the dice on a relief pitcher, only because I suspect that Arrondo and Masset will both be back next year.. There's two guys that are already a roll of the dice (more or less).. Big upsides, but not very consistent. You could possibly lump Chapman in that group as well.
I'm hoping the Reds can score a solid reliever over the winter so that Ondrusek doesn't have to pitch every day.. I guess the closer job is open as well.
The Reds' pen could be great next year if everything falls in place.. or it could be maddening.. Thus, I'd rather get a steady guy to add to the pen and take a chance somewhere else.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
